About me

Since March 2014 I have been a researcher in the STARS team at INRIA Méditerranée in Sophia Antipolis, France.

My research is in computer vision and image processing. My latest results deal with health monitoring and specifically with facial dynamics recognition in Alzheimer's disease patients.

I am also interested and involved in other areas, such as combining image processing and statistics towards analysis and algorithmic design of soft biometrics systems, video surveillance systems, beauty estimation, as well as the impact of facial cosmetics on automated biometric systems.


  • I am looking for a Ph.D. student in the area of Computer Vision and Deep Learning applied to Facial Analysis in invisibe spectra.
- At INRIA Méditerranée in Sophia Antipolis, France - ideally located in the heart of the French Riviera, inside the multi-cultural silicon valley of Europe.

Positions are offered within the framework of the French national project SafeCity in collaboration with Gemalto, France.
